Cycled Around Hampstead Heath (25th September 2011)
We’re making the most of the long farewell to Summer 2011. Today, Fiona and I rode to, around and through Hampstead Heath along the (slightly sparse) cycle tracks out there. It’s a much hillier place than we anticipated!
Coming back we went via Highgate. We now understand where the “high” bit comes from. Think my rear 2 gear is broken, it just spins and doesn’t drive. So I had to hastily dismount and walk up one of the steeper stretches. (This is also known as a controlled fall.)
Was going to cycle this morning but there was some rain. It had finished by the time we left. Turned out to be a good thing because it poured down at hometime this evening! Hopefully more commuter pedalling for the rest of this week.
